George Clooney Returns to Prague!
Academy Award winning heartthrob seen sipping coffee in city centre
World famous Madame Tussauds surprised Prague tourists and coffee drinkers today with the one and only George Clooney, who was spotted enjoying an early morning caffeine boost in a café on Old Town Square.
“I nearly tripped over someone walking in the other direction when I saw him!” said passerby, Jana. “He was so lifelike… I had no idea it was a Madame Tussauds figure and not the living, breathing George Clooney until I realized he wasn’t moving.”
The international heartthrob has returned to Prague to rejoin fellow A-listers Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, Bruce Willis, Heidi Klum, Lady Gaga and everyone’s favourite funny man, Jim Carrey.
“Our philosophy is ‘no ropes or barriers’,” said Kieran Lancini, Global Head of Media Relations for Madame Tussauds. “We give fans the chance to get closer to their idols and Mr. Clooney in particular always seems to get pulses racing and cameras flashing.”
However, Mr. Clooney is not travelling alone. Two surprise stars will join him at the Madame Tussauds Special Exhibition, hosted by the Prague Wax Museum located at 6 Celetna Street. Admission is included in the entrance price to the Prague Wax Museum, 160 CZK for adults and 100 CZK for children.
